Let's (Really) See What Happens
Do you have a pet peeve with a particular phrase or word?
I know someone who has unfriended people on facebook because they posted in all caps.
Martha Beck has been known to scream out loud when she hears the words “I can’t.”
But the combination of words that gets my goat is some variation of “we’ll see” or “let’s see what happens.”
Let’s see what happens?!
As if we were passive hapless observers of circumstance? Like we don’t have any say in what unfolds?!
It’s our SEEING it that MAKES it happen!
(I hope my anti-caps friend isn’t reading.)
The only thing more maddening than hearing a deliberate creator say “we’ll see” is when I do it myself!
(What we resist, persists, huh?)
Here’s my suggestion:
If we’re going to “see what happens,” then let’s do exactly that! SEE IT HAPPENING. Whatever we want. In our minds first.
Remember that our conscious focus to something creates it. Let’s not abdicate away our manifesting power.
The next time I hear myself say “we’ll see,” I intend to use it as my trigger to imagine what I want to happen next.
And if you would be kind enough to scream out loud if you hear me say it, it turns out that’s actually quite effective in raising my awareness to change old habits. (Thank you – I think – Martha!)
